Bedarra Island

Bedarra Island is at the heart of the Queensland Islands' Family Islands National Park and is surrounded by the stunning Great Barrier Reef. Set midway between Cairns and Townsville, Bedarra Island is approximately 7 km off the mainland of the Tropical North Queensland coast.

Its nearest mainland town is the coastal holiday destination of Mission Beach and Bedarra offers a relaxing tropical island escape in an exclusive and luxurious setting. A granite island, Bedarra Island was once a part of Queensland's mainland about 8,000 years ago before the sea level rose.

Bedarra Island is now a spectacular oasis of golden beaches, giant granite coves and boulders, lush green rainforest, crystal clear waters and colourful corals. A continental island, Bedarra's north and southeasterly aspects enjoy impressive granite escarpments and rugged peaks rising up to a moderate height from iconic boulder formations.

Your time on Bedarra Island can be spent doing as much or as little as you like and there are plenty of ways to spend your time including snorkelling, paddle skiing, fishing and exploring the island's beauty from motorised dinghies however if that all gets too much you can laze around the beach and work on your tan or take in the beautiful views.
